A little bit of heaven and a perfect jumping off point for exploring Skye and the farther islands. I would recommend staying 3 nights or staying 2 then going up to the farther islands by ferry and then returning for another night. The house is charming and you feel like you are staying in a country lodge. Marjory will fix you a wonderful breakfast.

Tips:

The Fairy pools are relatively close, but you will want to get an early start. Weather is variable so all weather gear and good shoes are a must. This whole area is enchanting and comforting to the spirit. You can sit on the porch and gaze at the Loch for hours.

A hidden gem. We received a lovely warm welcome from Marjorie on our arrival into their beautiful home. A fabulous view straight out onto the Loch in a very peaceful area. Our room was well equipped throughout our stay. At breakfast we were spoilt for choice with a great selection of food on offer. Marjorie & Eric's attention to detail was amazing, with lovely nature messages left on our table each morning. Our stay with them was perfect.

Tips:

Marjorie & Eric will provide evening meals if required but you must book these in advance. We travelled to Portree which has more choice than Broadford for food. We visited Old Man of Storr, Lealt Falls, Kilt Rock, Fairy Glen, Dunvegan Castle and grounds, Fairy Pools & Armadale Castle and grounds.

Marjory and Eric were fantastic hosts, and we felt very well cared for (and fed!) during our week-long stay. Room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. There were stunning views of Loch Sligachan, and we enjoyed sitting with a takeaway on the terrace one evening as the sun set. Would definitely recommend to other travellers.

Tips:

Sconser Lodge Hotel was just up the road, and a great place to go for dinner (though need to book in advance). Otherwise, being in the centre of the island made it a good base to explore all that Skye has to offer.

Breakfast was great, the best we had in Scotland. We had plenty of space, and everything was perfectly clean. We would love to come again.

Tips:

There is plenty to do and to see on Skye. There are only a few restaurants close by. Seumas' Bar is nice, but often completely booked. If you don't want to go to Portree, we liked the Old Inn on the road to Talisker.

Marjory & Eric were great hosts. The room was very comfortable and well furnished. Cooked breakfast was the best ever. Great location for visiting the whole of Skye, situated half way between Broadford and Portree.

Tips:

If the weather is a bit iffy, head south. Still spectacular and a better chance of sunshine! When you do coastal circular tours in the north & west, please note that there are very few cafe's, bars, hotels shops etc. There appears to be plenty of restaurants in Broadford and Portree but we actually ended up at Munro's Bar at the Taigh Ailean Hotel in Portnalong and also The Old Inn in Carbost. Food & Drink was excellent. Staff also very friendly. Unfortunately the nearest bar/restaurant, Seumus' Bar at the Sligachan Hotel only takes bookings for 6 or more and we couldn't get a table from when we arrived at 7.

We had a very lovely stay at Loch Aluinn! We spent four nights at the location. Our hosts were so warm, kind, welcoming and sweet! Marjory was able to give us tips for the area each morning as we headed out. The rooms were spacious, clean, and quiet. The location is very central to the island, so everything isn’t too far a drive. We loved our time in Skye and would absolutely stay at Loch Aluinn again when we return! Breakfast was a highlight for us! Very fresh and delicious- and kept us full until dinner! You can tell that Marjory and her husband really care for their guests, focusing on every detail to make the stay wonderful.

Tips:

The Sligachan Hotel Restaurant is only a 5 minute drive away and is a great spot to end the evening. They have a great beer and an excellent whisky selection. If you want to eat dinner anywhere on the island, make a reservation! Just call the restaurants to inquire/reserve. We saw on our last day that Loch Aluinn would also offer an early dinner option - I’m sure dinner would also be very delicious!! And I think it’s wonderful that they offer another service since during peak times, dinner can be hard to find on the island without reservations. We never made it to Raasay but the ferry there is very close to Loch Aluinn! You can also see adorable highland “coos” just 6 minutes up the road as well :)

Marjory was a phenomenal host, always friendly and forthcoming. There was a nice selection of breakfast to choose from. She even packed a breakfast to go when we had to leave early. There are simple but well-made dinner options available, but need to be pre-ordered in the morning.

There are nice hiking trails starting at Sconser. Beware that the area doesn't have a lot of restaurants, if you're traveling in the peak season, reserve a table early or order the dinner at Loch Aluinn.

Although this B&B is not located near restaurants, it is in a perfect location for hikes in the Caullin mountains or taking the ferry to Raasey island. As our trip was based on hiking, it was the perfect place for us. Breakfasts were exceptional and we took advantage of several evening meals served at the B&B. All were excellent; however, there is no match for the Shepard's Pie!!!

Thank you for being so welcoming and kind throughout our stay. The special touch of our anniversary gift and card was very much appreciated! The breakfasts were absolutely amazing and set us up brilliantly for our long days of walking. I’m still thinking about that grilled cheese sandwich! The room was impeccable with unrivaled views!!! The only tiny thing that could be improved is the shower as it wasn’t very powerful but it was a very small price to pay for the amazing experience we had. Thank you!

Tips:

Where to start! The granary in portree had the most amazing fish and chips and the food served at tongadale hotel and restaurant was excellent and immense in portion size. The fairy pools are an absolute must and the walk up to storr to experience the views was well worth it! A visit to coral beach was also very enjoyable but overall just driving around Skye with the beautiful lochs and mountains is enough to make one want to relocate!

Location on Skye perfect can reach both ends of the island easily enough quiet overnight even on main road through to Portree. Views of Loch and mountains..every facility you would need...stayed here for 2 seperate 3 night breaks in between we went to Outer Hebrides. Hosts just perfect...foid freak we really chilled out

Tips:

Be careful on the approach drive if have low slung car. Easy to get food and fuel from Coop in Broaford. We experienced a little difficulty in finding places to eat later in the day...seems to be staffing shortages across the island. Went to Skye Silver and spent too much money but liked their stuff

Many thanks indeed for your fantastic review of your 2 short stays with us. Delighted to hear you enjoyed the views and chilled out on our food offers!😊. Unfortunately there were indeed some staffing shortages at the time, this was primarily down to staff sickness at the time due to Covid-19. Thankfully the local Coop, our guest microwave provision and our homemade evening meal offer has successfully helped to fill the food availability gaps. Skye Silver is a very popular stop with beautiful pieces which as you say, are very difficult to resist! With our thanks again and very best wishes to you both, Marjory & Eric

Sconser is well placed for visiting many places of interest, including the Raasay ferry. For local restaurants The Hebridean Inn, Sconser Lodge and further afield for a celebratory lunch The Three Chimneys. Currently though many cafes seem to be shut early in the week.

Tips:

We ate in Carbost, Sligachan, Portree and also Sconser Lodge. Sconser Lodge is closest and is within a walkable distance - dinner there was my favourite! This is a good area in which to base a stay on Skye - Portree and beyond is easily accessible, as is the nearby ferry to Raasay.

This was our third stay at Loch Aluinn that alone says how much we enjoy it. Marjory makes us feel most welcome to her lovely home. Our room was spacious with a most comfortable bed. It was equipped with all you required, even a most useful small fridge. The en suite was spacious and well maintained. The view from our room of the mountain and the chickens kept us amused The facility to eat in was appreciated. Breakfast was of a really high standard and thoroughly enjoyed. All together a very pleasant place to stay and very easy to recommend to friends.

Tips:

Loch Aluinn is well situated for both Broadford and Portree. We would recommend a trip to Raasay on the very smooth running ferry only five minutes along the road. Once on Raasay a trip on Calum's Road is a must but be prepared for passing places on the road. The Stein Inn has a great atmosphere and very good food. The Skyeskins shop in Waternish with its cafe in a yurt is worth a visit.

El apartamento es perfecto, limpio y muy bien equipado. Para pasar todas las noches que quieras. Las camas muy cómodas, y aunque está justo en la carretera, nada de ruido. Marjory muy amable. Si vuelvo a Skye, volveré a Loch Aluinn.

Tips:

Portree está a unos 20' en coche. Y que ver? Absolutamente todo aquello que se pueda. Nos ha encantado perdernos por esas carreteras y ver esos magníficos paisajes. Mi única pega es tener que ir en Agosto, que es cuando más gente hay.

Thank you so much for your very much appreciated review of our apartment accommodation. We’re delighted to hear you found it very well equipped that the beds very comfortable and although the accommodation is set above and a little back from the main road you experienced no road noise - the blessing of having good insulation and double glazing! Thank you also for taking the time to share some of your helpful traveller tips. We hope to have you visit us again in the future, with our very best wishes, Marjory & Eric

Thank you so much for hosting us during our all too brief stay on Skye. Your hospitality was warm and much appreciated. Thank you!

Tips:

Seamus' Bar near this B&B was excellent for dinner and a pint. We also loved seeing Dunvegan Castle and Gardens.

I really cannot imagine a better place to stay in Skye. The house and our room were perfect, with lots of beautiful details. The surrounding -green mountains everywhere, and lovely sheep- are astonishing, and getting up and see that is priceless. And the owner is really lovely. We were really happy there. I wish we could be back every year!

Tips:

Climbing up The Storr is priceless and you can go up and down in two or three hours -depending if you stop or no. Portree is a beautiful little town to visit. These two things are 30 minutes from the house by car, aprox.

Tips:

Local eating at Sligachan or further at Portree. Abundance of wildlife spotting opportunities. Ideal base from which to tour the island.

Marjory is a very welcoming, warm host. The breakfast was delicious with a variety of local options to choose from and delicious fresh fruit. The location is great and the view from the room towards the loch are unforgettable. We had a very enjoyable stay at Loch Aluinn and would definitely recommend it.

Tips:

The place is located outside of town, so it is calm and quiet, yet it is conveniently positioned in the central part of Skye, so you can easily drive to all major attractions. A variety of shops and restaurants are available in Portree (15 minute drive) and some facilities are in nearby village.

Very comfortable,restful, calm beautiful site. Also the Annexe self catering ideal for your own pace.

Tips:

Stein Inn, Skeabost at Borve, both very good places to eat. The whole Island explored by car and visiting, Armadale Castle, and Kyleakin. The Bathik shop, and The Scottish shops worth the visit and purchase clothes. The people very pleasant,talented. All in all, a great experience, never a dull a moment. Overall, bonus, the weather made the visit magical.!!
